Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Royalton Prepares to Keep the Cold Outside

Just as it is at home, at Vitalia Active Adult Community – North Royalton, preparing for winter can be an arduous task. There are several projects that need to be completed in preparation for cold weather and few of them are easy, especially when Jack Frost decides to come a little early, like this year.

Our homes and businesses can be affected by how quickly we can accommodate these tasks. If we move too early, we miss out on some of the creature comforts. If we wait too long, we run the risk of finding issues at the most inconvenient times (like a broken heater on the night the weather unexpectedly dips below freezing).

Preparation is a strong part of the human condition. Whether storing vegetables and meat or cutting firewood, our ancestors have been preparing for winter weather since their beginning. These days, preparing for cold weather is just a little more complex.

Some tasks we do in the community to prepare for colder weather and freezing temperatures include checking the heaters in the mechanical rooms for the Villas, to ensure the water lines do not freeze, and turning thermostats to 65 degrees in vacant units. If the heaters in the mechanical room and thermostats aren’t working or at the right temperature, the pipes can freeze. This can disrupt service for the residents as well as cause property damage.

We have tasks that start usually in the month of September that have us checking these items, and others, for cold weather preparation.

No matter how big your house or successful your company, mother nature always seems to creep up on us this time of year. If you get ahead of it and plan for cold weather, you can save big on both stress and dollars.
